I didn’t know what other banner to use for this.  Scream 2 came out in 1997, and so does today’s song.  Sunny Came Home was the song of the year that year, and I don’t know what it’s about.  I have a theory.  See, this girl comes home from the insane asylum and has all sorts of guns and stuff and a list of people she needs to kill.

Then she sings a little and then she burns something down.  Maybe a monument or a lake.  Pretty violent song if you think about it.  But it sounds catchy, and that goes a long way.  I bet if you broke up with someone in song they wouldn’t feel as bad.  I know I wouldn’t.  Unless the song was mean.  Or if you broke up with me when I was on a precarious ladder.  Why would you even think of breaking up with me when I’m on a damn ladder?  What kind of heartless fucker are you?  Video and lyrics after the jump.

Shawn Colvin – Sunny Came Home

Sunny came home to her favorite room
Sunny sat down in the kitchen
She opened a book and a box of tools
Sunny came home with a mission

She says days go by I’m hypnotized
I’m walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire

Sunny came home with a list of names
She didn’t believe in transcendence
It’s time for a few small repairs she said
Sunny came home with a vengeance

She says days go by I don’t know why
I’m walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire

Get the kids and bring a sweater
Dry is good and wind is better
Count the years, you always knew it
Strike a match, go on and do it

Days go by I’m hypnotized
I’m walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire
Light the sky and hold on tight
The world is burning down
She’s out there on her own and she’s alright
Sunny came home
Sunny came home…
